Samsung has been comparatively slow in releasing security patches for the last two months, possibly because of work on Android Pie.

Samsung detailed […]
January is nearly at an end, but Samsung is far from done when it comes to releasing the month's security patch for its devices. It's been a slow march compared to security patches from the last few months of 2018, perhaps because of work on Android Pie, but we're seeing the January patch coming out […]
Samsung's original Galaxy A series lineup has been diluted heavily in the last few months, with the company launching devices like the Galaxy A7 (2018) and the Galaxy A9 (2018) without staple A series features like water resistance and Samsung Pay support. The Galaxy A8 (2018) and A8+ (2018) are perhaps the last true Galaxy […]
Samsung launched the Galaxy A8+, along with the smaller Galaxy A8, earlier this year as a premium mid-range offering. It was the first Galaxy A series phone to sport an Infinity display and dual-cameras on the front. Until the launch of the Galaxy A8 Star, it was Samsung’s top-of-the-line midrange smartphone, sitting just below the […]
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A7 earlier today. It's the company's first smartphone with a triple camera system at the back. It was rumored prior to its launch that this handset's specs would be largely similar to that of the Galaxy A8+ (2018). That does appear to be the case as this Galaxy A7 vs Galaxy […]
Samsung is updating a number of mid-range devices with the September 2018 security patch. These devices include the Galaxy A8 (2016), Galaxy A8+ (2018), the Galaxy C7, and the new Galaxy A8 Star.
Based on a Geekbench result, we reported about a new Galaxy A series device with model number SM-A750FN under development last month. The model number pointed to a successor to the current Galaxy A8+ (2018). We haven’t heard much about this device since then, but it has now been spotted on the FCC website securing […]
The Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) have been sitting on Android 7.0 Nougat for a tad too long at this point, but Samsung doesn't seem to be very active in making the Oreo update for these devices as widely available as possible. But since the debut of the Galaxy A8 (2018) Oreo update, […]
More than six months after the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) hit retail, Samsung has released the Android 8.0 Oreo update for its most premium Galaxy A series offerings. The rollout kicked off in Russia last week, along with some of the neighboring markets. While it can take a few weeks for the […]
Samsung has finally released the Galaxy A8 (2018) Oreo update, bringing an end to months of waiting for owners of the company's latest premium mid-range phones. The Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8+ (2018) are currently being updated to Android 8.0 Oreo in Russia. The rollout seems to have started over the weekend, and since […]
Samsung has already rolled out the Android 8.0 Oreo update to many of its flagship and midrange offerings. Given the breadth of its lineup, there are many eligible Galaxy devices still waiting to receive the Oreo update. The Galaxy A8 and A8+, which were launched earlier this year with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, are part of […]
The Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ took us by surprise when they were announced, revealing Samsung's plans to take elements of both its mid-range A series and budget J series phones and mixing them to create something that's different from anything we have seen from the company in recent memory. What hasn't changed is that […]
Samsung is rolling out updates with the May 2018 security patch to a couple of smartphones today. These phones are the Galaxy A8+, Galaxy S8 (and S8+), and the Galaxy J1 mini Prime, so it's one each from the low-end, mid-range, and high-end segments of Samsung's ever-expanding Galaxy lineup. The Galaxy S8 update is rolling […]
Many of Samsung's mid-range smartphones no longer have removable batteries which means you can no longer carry around a spare battery and pop it in whenever your phone runs out of charge. That is the case with the Galaxy A8 and the Galaxy A8+ (2018) and while their 3,000mAh and 3,500mAh batteries respectively will get […]
Samsung started updating its devices to the Android 8.0 Oreo in February, beginning with the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Since then, the company has pushed out the Oreo update to the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S7/S7 Edge, Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017), etc. However, the newer Galaxy A8 and A8+ which were launched earlier […]
